We invite you to a half day training that will prepare your mind, body, and spirit for the challenges, opportunities, and joys of fundraising.

We have prepared a panel of your peers and coaches who will drill down on the basics of fundraising fundamentals.

You will roll up your sleeves and get in the trenches tackling some of the following questions:

  • What are some of the tools I can use to identify and grasp the needs of my parish?
  • How do I craft our parish needs into a clear, focused case statement that will engage and excite my parishioners?
  • How do I get over the fear of asking my parishioners to support our identified needs?
  • What are the ways I can cultivate and sustain a culture of giving at my parish?
  • Key Note and panel of speakers to be announced

    Emcee: Joe Naylor, CFRE, Chief Development Officer, Diocese of San Jose

    Target Audience: Pastors, Parochial Vicars, Business Managers, and Chair of Parish Finance or Stewardship Committee.

    Lunch will be provided.
